Playing With Color

I love finding great eye shadow colors but I rarely use them because I don't have the time to figure out how to use all the various shades on my lids.  But lately my friends have really been pushing me to create more looks and post them.  I might as well use the stuff I bought right? 
 
Shown below is a deeply pigmented purple shadow look I did using Maybelline Color Tattoo.  I started with a sheer application of the color tattoo as a base and added two other colors for depth and dimension.  I recommend lightly applying Maybelline Color Tattoo onto your whole eyelid from lash line to just above the crease.  You can use your finger or a flat brush.  With colors as bold as these, always work gradually in thin layers.  Darker colors can be blended in the Outer V of the eye. 
 
When using bold eye shadows I never consider my eye color...you know the whole idea that blue eyes look great with brown shadows blah blah blah!  There are no concrete rules for makeup.  So if a shade that isn't in your eye color category appeals to you, try it! Whether you have brown or baby blue eyes, don't be afraid to play with color.
